Let me start this off by saying that I have been binge listening to The Quibbler Podcast and it is amazing and you should go listen to it ASAP. Okay… on to the story…

Hands up if you have no clue about the difference between a blender brush and an angle brush! Do they put color on my eyelid? That’s all I need. I have a confession to make though, I own so many eyeshadow pallettes it’s sad and there’s only so many youtube beauty vloggers/tutorials I can deal with on a weekly basis. And to be honest, I really only enjoy watching Kimberly Clark. So a lot of my eyeshadow gets used once while I’m experimenting because well… putting on makeup is not really something fun for me.

I’m trying though! I’m really trying! I know that you don’t really NEED makeup to look beautiful and all that, but for me it at least makes my mornings look like I tried to be a functional adult. These Magic Wand Harry Potter Makeup Brushes though? They kinda make me want to actually do my makeup because it just gives me a chance to use them. That and I can turn on the Harry Potter soundtrack and pretend to cast a floating charm on Grampa the Cat (It has never worked because I never got my Hogwarts letter and I am still bitter about that)

1. Start by taping off your makeup brushes.

I got my brushes from Target for $1 each. They’re ELF brand which I absolutely love – as a complete amateur in the makeup department and someone who is on a budget, they’re great quality for a great price.

2. Grab your heated glue gun and start gluing the designs onto the end of each brush.

I had an idea of what I wanted each to look like and if you’re not happy, you can peel off and start again. For the nobbly ones (white and black) I did a base design and built on top on the ends for a more bulky finish. You can do criss cross, swirls, lines…. have fun with it!

Keep hold of each brush until the glue has set, or about 60 seconds.

3. Paint each brush! 

I used brown, black and white. Each brush took two coats. While they were drying, I taped them so the painted end was hanging off the side of my table. I know… super high tech!

After each brush was painted a base color, I added details with a dry brush and metallic silver and bronze.

4. To finish, I added a layer of mod podge as a sealant. This gave the brushes a glossier, more polished texture. Allow all of that to dry overnight and you’re ready for some magical makeup attempts! These make great handmade gifts for that Harry Potter fan in your life, party favors and a fun group DIY! Have fun with them! I can’t wait to see what you create!
